According to a report on the Web site hiphopdx.com, Houston rappers Mike Jones and Trae da Truth were involved in a scuffle at last night's Ozone Awards at the George R. Brown Convention Center. "As artists and media congregated in the press area, a commotion broke out and by the time everyone made it to the hallway, Jones was being pulled back while security rushed to the scene," writes hiphopdx's Andreas Hale.
"It just really was a publicity stunt," the article quotes Jones as saying live on Majic 102.1 FM shortly after the incident. "Everybody seen that it was the perfect time to do this. They don't have to pay for advertisements and promotion so he did that. Dude came and shook my hand and I guess he's mad because I call myself the president - because I am the president of H-Town, I run this city."
Due to a mixup with Ozone's PR firm, the Press was unable to get a reporter into the awards, but has made several inquiries with people who were there, and will update this story as we learn more information. - Chris Gray
